Description

In Furious Hours, a true-crime thriller, Reverend Willie Maxwell was a rural preacher accused of murdering five of his family members for insurance money in the 1970s. With the help of a savvy lawyer, he escaped justice for years until a relative shot him dead at the funeral of his last victim. Despite hundreds of witnesses, Maxwell’s murderer was acquitted – thanks to the same attorney who had previously defended Maxwell. Sitting in the audience at the trial was Harper Lee, who spent a year in town reporting, and many more years working on her own version of the case.
